A hostess and her apron
The feminist side of me and the 1950s housewife side are in constant conflict with one another. Pigeonholing women into traditional gender roles frustrates me, but I can’t help but have a lot of heart for certain traditional icons, starting with my not-so-secret love for everything Betty Draper. How can you not love the parenting skills of a woman who lectured her children with martini and cigarette in hand while wearing heels and an apron? The apron is just as important as the rest of her outfit. And why not? A good hostess should always try to balance time spent with guests and time spent in the kitchen. How to do it without ruining your outfit? With an apron that completes your ensemble (and an open concept floor plan can’t hurt either). In love with these aprons from Williams-Sonoma… their personality profiles are adorable.
